It seems that no matter how hard you try; many of us will spend the first 4 weeks of the year feeling rather deflated.
January is a grey month in both weather and mood; however here at Ezylet we think it should be seen as an opportunity to get those jobs around the home finished that you may have been putting off over the festive period.
Having a sort through of your possessions and of course rearranging your furniture can not only help keep you busy when the weather keeps you indoors, but it can also make you feel a whole lot better too.
So why not roll those sleeves up and make January your month to Feng Shui your home?
What is Feng Shui?
It is a term that you may have heard of but do you actually know what it means? Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice of repositioning the objects around your home in order to release the property of any negativity that may have built up.
All the different areas of your home relate to a particular area of your life, which includes health, love and money.

Clutter is the headache of us all however it is the one thing that we all seem to have. The basics of Feng Shui doesn’t mean that you need to throw out all your most loved possessions but it should be your aim to have everything neatly arranged or stored so that you can clean and tidy your room.
You might not realise it, but flowers are thought to offer a real positive boost to your mood as well as the look of your home. They provide a splash of colour as well as a pleasant smell and during the early parts of the year you will find some great winter blooms that are both beautiful and dramatic.
When it comes to peace of mind; your bed is thought to be one of the most important parts of the home. Feng Shui states that your headboard should never be on the same wall as the door and if this is impossible you should make sure that you add a mirror to the opposite wall so that you can keep an out for anyone entering your room.
The toilet lid
It isn’t just a cause for arguments between many couples; the toilet seat lid can also be an important part of your Feng Shui. Leaving it up means that Ch’I can escape; not a great thing if your bathroom falls within the wealth or love part of your home.
